Rated 5 out of 5 by wantagoodfit comfy, soft, good fit
My Bean's mock is all I expected and more. The fabric is soft, length of arms is perfect and the neck is not too tight. It washes like a dream and is well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KMcGhee perfect fit
The mock-turtleneck fits perfectly. The color wasn't quite what it appeared to be online. It is about 2 shades brighter than what I was expecting, not bad, but if I had seen it in person I may not have gone with the Glen Green. Still, overall very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nfmoon Nice Tops
As soon as it starts getting chilly enough to wear mine I do....often. It's gotten to the point where I get pretty much all of my casual clothing from LLBean. Great selection of colors, just right amount of stretch, though not sure if the small amount of spandex is in all the choices. And the stretch never goes away. It's still in my older tops. They do shrink after a lot of washes and eventually instead of letting them line dry I start throwing them in the dryer and that adds to the shrinkage. But I still love them. I can wear them under another top and to go hiking it when there is a chill in the air but it's not really cold. I will keep buying them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Evyy soft and colorfast, but shrunk too much
Bean mock turtles are soft, colorfast and comfortable. However, they shrink so much after a few washings that my wrists and waist are no longer covered. Your color selections are great - but I now go to the competition to buy my turtles. Many reviewers have raised this issue - perhaps a different fabric composition or offering them in tall sizes would be useful to your valued customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yeti Nice Top but Sleeves Really Shrink
I bought several of these tops over a year's time. The fabric is very nice. Soft and just the right thickness. The drape and construction is very good. The colors are beautiful. However, the sleeves shrink a lot over multiple washings. I usually wear a medium but got large sizes to compensate for the shrinking. It didn't help. The sleeves are now slightly shorter than my preference.
I wear these as a layer now. Still pretty colors after the multiple washings. Not much fading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by coldincalif Size up indeed!
I read the reviews and decided to size up. Normal size is petite XL and I ordered 1X. After washing this, I compared it to the waffle henley I purchased from L.L. Bean (size is XL regular). I compared the two after washing both of them in the same load and they are EXACTLY the same size now. So yes it shrinks but I like it better than many of the L.L. Bean turtlenecks/mock turtlenecks that can be purchased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SLactuary Great wear, but...
I usually LOVE anything LL Bean, but this mock neck falls short. By short I mean I barely come to 5'4" and the sleeves on my medium only reach to about one inch ABOVE my wristbone, although the shoulder seams are at exactly the right spot. If you are of "normal" confirmation, you may want to think about arm length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by adirondackee Shrinks like crazy
I ordered 2 of these shirts in medium and they fit perfectly but once washed it shrunk so much the sleeves were very short and the shirt uncomfortably short. I returned and purchased large - washed them and they are great. I like the colors and fabric is very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by momosmom love the thin stripes - colors too bright for me
The black/gray is my favorite mock neck--I have ordered six! I like thin stripes, but the other colors are too bright, though I did get one of the cranberry ones. Please make more colors, such as oatmeal/otter or other neutrals, please!
Also re solid colors for your shirts, please tone it down--the regular mock necks are too bright (yellow, coral, red: all WOWser bright!!). This is a shirt, not a beacon in case I get lost in a storm!
Otherwise love you, LLBean, especially Pima cotton shirts.

Love the feel and look of this mock. Material is very nice. May pick up another one. Got the red - color really nice and warm.
